No Appointment Needed!
American Family Care Virginia Beach offers walk-in services for routine checkups, when it is convenient for you - no appointments necessary! An important part of staying healthy is visiting your doctor once a year for an annual checkup. People are encouraged to be proactive when it comes to their own healthcare so any health problems can be caught and treated early. We offer this time to discuss any health concerns you may have with our medical professionals so that we can order any testing you may need.
What Does a Routine Checkup Include?
To begin, your height and weight will be taken, and then vital signs will be measured. Height, weight, and vital signs all act as a barometer of important bodily functions and provide a sort of quick snapshot of your overall health. Tracking vital signs over time, including blood pressure, pulse, body temperature, and respiration rates, are useful tools to assess your risk for numerous health conditions and chronic diseases. Before your physical exam, a family history will be taken, and you will discuss certain lifestyle choices pertaining to your health with your physician, including smoking, alcohol/drug use, sleeping patterns, sexual activity, diet and exercise. Your routine checkup at AFC Urgent Care Virginia Beach also includes a head-to-toe physical exam.
Why Do I Need a Routine Checkup if I Feel Fine?
If you wonder why a physical exam is necessary, you’re not alone. The fact is, many diseases are “silent killers," which gradually manifest symptoms. These diseases, such as heart disease or Type 2 diabetes, are best treated in their early stages. A routine checkup can help keep you informed of your overall health and what you can do to ensure you stay as healthy as possible.
